[sword-devel] Hyphenation in the context of narrow displays

I suspect these modules don't include paragraph marking other than a 
blank line encoded via two linebreaks, so it might be slightly difficult 
to detect paragraphs. It's better if we just re-issue this content, 
since it is truly ancient and it looks bad it pretty much every front end.

(Just file a bug report in Jira, or send me an email and I will, 
whenever you discover a module with hardcoded linebreaks. I'm unlikely 
to get to anything non-urgent prior to Christmas, but at that point, 
I'll start trying to clear Jira again.)
